Wind all about the wind. Firestone is a little town that was buiilt in a field with nothing around it. My former home course is in Ft.Lupton down the road, always windy up there. I work in Brighton just 6 miles south. There are days I leave for the course and it's dead calm in town but when I get to the course it is windy enough to make golfing tricky. Wind is a four letter word around here.
It's surprising how strong it frequently is. I live outside of town and it can be howling at my house, then completely still in town. Or I can be in school with no wind, then go directly to the course to play and find that I've got quite a bit of wind to contend with. I suppose it's somewhat helpful in that I know how to hit low shots fairly well because of it.
This hole, surprisingly, actually plays easier with a headwind than a tailwind. That's just because it's easy to stop the ball on the green with a headwind, but it often skips over into a back bunker with the tailwind.
